The Importance of Story

It’s 10:30 in the morning right now, and I’ve already heard more stories than I can count on my hands and toes. Every time we as humans communicate with each other, story is somehow part of the process, whether it’s celebrity gossip over the water cooler, or hearing about your younger sibling’s day at school.

On Thursday, May 12 at 4 PM, world renowned literary artist, Tod Davies, is coming to the SOU Hannon Library, to talk about story, its impact on our culture, and why we need new ones now more than ever.

Davies’ open discussions are notoriously rowdy so come prepared for a treat. Just to name a few of the many titles Davies holds, she is the screenwriter for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,  the producer of Revengers Tragedy, the author of The History of Arcadia and Jam Today series, and the editorial director of Exterminating Angel Press.

This event is free and open to the public. This discussion is part of the Friends of Hannon Library event series, a yearlong collection of speakers presenting at Hannon Library to enlighten students and the Rogue Valley community. To learn more about the series click here.
